Welcome to the Thomson School Health Office

For information about entry requirements and other health related news, please consult the Dept. links on the left.


Vision and hearing screening has begun at Thomson for all  students. In addition to vision and hearing, grade one and four students have growth screenings (height, weight and BMI).  If you would like to exclude your child from any of these screenings, please send a note to the school nurse.  While we do pick up vision or hearing issues during the screenings, these screenings do not replace the  diagnostic exam performed by an eye doctor or audiologist. If your child does not pass the school vision or hearing screening, you will be notified that your child needs to be referred to a specialist for further evaluation. It is important to make an appointment and return the referral form to the nurse's office when completed so that we can keep your child's health record up to date and make any recommended educational accommodations.
 If you would like to obtain the results of your first or fourth grade child's growth screening (BMI), please contact the school nurse.
